WINNER BELOW: My first giveaway!! Starry, Starry Night Necklace

So who wants to know the winner of the giveaway???
after adding everyone's name and entries into a spreadsheet and using Random.org....
the winner picked was

'chelle from Cosmetic Cupcake

Thank you to all who entered...........there will be more to come soon :0)

So this is my first ever giveaway and I am very excited :0) As you can see, I have very few readers (46) - so your odds are pretty good to win. I am new to blogging and am still learning about it.

Blogging may not be my thing, but making beautiful jewelry is! I have changed my nail polish necklaces and they will now be finished in a pendant cup with glass over the top. These necklace will be available in my store in 2011 (in a single color or the water marbled version).

I did not want to wait until 2011 - so I decided to give one away for the New Year!

Here is the Starry, Starry Night necklace I created for the giveaway...yes it is made from the rare, impossible to find Essie SSN nail polish.

Now I guess there has to be some rules to a giveaway....
